Remember the thread I started for Heinlein fanatics? That was $2200 for a lousy 46 books. The Penguin Classics comprise 1082 books! (Including 38 by Anonymous, that ol’ hack.) That’s a mere $7.38 per book. For a stack 838 feet high! Weighing 700 pounds!
OK, so they’re only paperbacks. You try lugging 1082 hardbacks up to your bedside.
And if you read a page a minute, three hours a day, 365 days a year, you could finish them all in about 8 years. Think of the CS threads you could start! Wouldn’t that alone be worth $7,989.99?
P.S. If you go to the page, click Add to Cart just to see what they’re going to charge for shipping. You’ll be surprised.
